When Kazuya Mishima was thrown off a cliff by his father, Heihachi, the devil gene activated within him. Devil appeared and offered Kazuya the ultimate power he needed to defeat his father Heihachi, in exchange for his soul. Kazuya, driven by anger and revenge, accepted Devil's offer. Since Kazuya met Jun Kazama, another entity was created within Kazuya known as Angel which represented all that was good within him. Angel represents the "good" version of Kazuya's Devil Gene. She fought to save Kazuya's soul from Devil, and failed at her attempt.

Nice try Angel, but there's no stopping the devil gene! Kazuya wouldn't be as cool without it (so we forgive you, Angel). Tekken's storyline is filled with hatred and "bad guys" as anti-heroes, which is one of its most defining elements. Nonetheless, Angel was an interesting contrast to Devil in the earlier games, even though her original appearance was pretty generic.

The Tekken series went on without her for many years, but Namco went all out with her epic return in TTT2! Her visual design in Tag 2 is much more interesting than her original look, along with her vastly upgraded moveset. While Angel's moveset is based on Devil Jin, she does have quite a few unique moves & mannerisms - making her a fun character for Mishima players. 

On a random yet interesting side note: Angel's Tekken 2 artwork has her standing in a room with a checkered floor and a balcony. Nearly 2 decades after this image was released, the Fallen Colony stage appeared in Tekken 6 - with the same floor. It's gotta be the same place. (Don't forget you heard it here on TFG first!) ;)
